Yesterday on P4 of a Dream of White Horses I saw a nest of birds in a crack and snapped a few shots before moving away and warning my partner.

Not sure what they are except they're very cute. Not sure if this information is useful, but thought I'd post here to give people some warning.

Gawd! Dartford Warbler. Well, that's Wen ruled out for the rest of the summer.

Only joking. No idea. Sorry.

They look most probably Rock Pipits. They aren't usually too worried round there about people - quite commonly follow around kayakers. 

In any case there have been at least 20 DoWH ascents logged on UKC in June alone (while this pair would have been incubating eggs and rearing these chicks when young) so it's unlikely that climbers will upset them unduly in the week or two until these youngsters fledge. 

I guess the only advice would be 'move through quickly rather than hanging around the area'..... But I guess this isn't likely to be a big issue here..... ;)
